Ireland come into the game top of the group, which isn’t much of a surprise when they gave played 2 games against both the lowest rank sides in Group D. Denmark have only played the one game, against Switzerland in what was a dramatic 3-3 draw after being 3-0 down with 15 minutes left.

Irelands issue seems to start from the front. They beat both Georgia and Gibraltar by a measly 1 goal each time and given the superiority to both of these sides highlights a real issue for the Irishmen. Both goals in these games came from midfield, which Hourihane and Hendricks getting on the score sheet meaning it has been 7 games for green army without a forward player scoring a goal.

Denmark on the contrary have netted 9 goals in their last 5 games, averaging 1.8 goals per game, which is certainly stronger than Ireland. Interestingly both fixtured between the pair in the Nations League finished 0-0, so hopefully we are heading for a slightly better affair this time around.

Given only 2 teams qualify from the groups in this new format, and with Switzerland also in the group it is possible one of these 2 sides will miss out on qualification, that is unless Switzerland cause a shock and win the UEFA Nations League finals. Denmark already edged Ireland out of the World Cup in the play offs, and will be hoping for a repeat again this campaign.

Denmark are likely to give Eriksen a rest after the Champions League finalist only joined up with the squad on Monday.

The Verdict

I think we are again set for a tight affair. For Ireland a point away from home against a side like Denmark will be a good result. Whether they will get it or not is a different question. Denmark definitely have the quality over Ireland, but it can take them a while to break them down. Given the last 2 meetings were 0-0 at fulltime it is again likely this game could be low scoring, so adjusting to this to get the Danes on side looks a very viable play.
